Recognizing--and overcoming--defensive communication

, : Recognizing--and overcoming--defensive communication.

The dynamics of a successful communicative process and the negative effects of "defensiveness" on good interpersonal relations are explored. The outcome of open communication is the continuing ability to communicate ideas, values, and goals in meaningful terms. Problem areas in interpersonal communication are reviewed with the use of anecdotal situations as examples. Some of the concepts covered are reciprocation, real vs. imagined self concept, self preservation, and body language.
